Downtown Events for #MercerKickoff | Schools
If you head downtown Saturday, you may see so much orange and black you'll think it's Halloween. Don't worry, it's just Mercer's first football game.
Here's where you may find some fellow fans on Saturday:
Mercer Tailgate in Cherry St. Plaza
Main Street Macon, NewTown Macon and the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame have organized a tailgating event at Cherry Street Plaza. You're invited to bring tents and tables and hang out while the A2Z Band performs.
Free parking, a public transit will bus people to the stadium for $2 a person.
Street party in Mercer Village
"Bear Square," the area at the intersection of Montpelier, Coleman, and Linden Ave. turns into a tailgating block party with drink specials, take-out packages and other festivities.
Mercer University's campus will also have three locations open for tailgating.
